Chris nailed it on the first go. He has such great touch and feel. He knew exactly what I wanted without giving him too much instruction. An absolute pleasure to work with. Highly recommend, will be using him again!
Chris is a pleasure to work with. It's our second project professionally and promptly executed. I can highly recommend Chris.
Pleasure to work with. Prompt, good listener and great drummer. Highly recommend Chris to work with!
I absolutely love working with Chris. He’s an excellent drummer and musician (of course) but he’s also one of the most wonderful, fun and kind people I know. A true pleasure.
Great ears, great feel, great fun. Chris will make you want to delete a lot of drummer's phone numbers.
I have worked with many drummers over the years and Chris will always be my number one shout! Professional in every way and and an absolute dream to work. Obviously a fantastic drummer from a technical perspective but ticks all the other boxes... friendly, punctual, creative, adaptable, experienced, production skills, approachable, the list goes on...
Extremely professional, consistent and inventive. A joy to work with in every way.
Groove - feel - imagination - chops - great ears - great time - great attitude - all round good guy.
In the studio Chris plays what you want to hear but also offers what you never thought you wanted to hear, but which you end up loving more. He is a chameleon able to adjust to any project and with a producer’s ear - never overplaying or filling up too much space and constantly mindful of how the drums are serving the composition. At home with the old schoolers in the analogue end of the pool but equally up to date on the cutting edge, if I could pay him to live in my studio and activate him whenever I needed live drums, I actually would. But my wife would never allow it.
I have worked with Chris both in person and online, co-creating an EP's worth of tracks. He's extremely talented and very quick with writing & recording amazing live/programmed drum tracks.
Also, easy to communicate with and professional. Chris knows what he's doing and how to nail eclectic genres through years of experience listening & playing. Always a pleasure and I look forward to the next time!
Chris is super professional and is a pleasure to work with. He is quick to respond to all communication and knows exactly how to deliver the final product. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Chris to anyone.
Chris is the best sort of combination of drummer, producer and music lover. He uses all three of these traits to not only come up with parts that wonderfully compliment whatever the material is, but he also really considers the timbre and tone of how his drums and cymbals sound, and how that fits in to the style and genre of the material- which to me is worth its weight in gold. 10/10 would recommend!
Chris recorded drums for me on some library tracks. He absolutely nailed the vibe needed for each track (all were different styles) and elevated the sound brilliantly - client loved the mixes. Great sound quality, mic choice etc, and good communication too. Super lovely chap.
